Outdated I-129F form

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

so I never received a text or email. But I finally received a notice by mail. It says that my application was filed on an outdated form. But when I go to uscis website it says this:

Edition Date :

11/23/10; (06/14/10; 02/19/10 editions also accepted)

Note on Expiration: USCIS continues to accept the 11/23/10 edition of Form I-129F available here despite the passing of the form's expiration date. An updated form will be posted as soon as it becomes available.

they returned the entire package to me. what am I suppose to do now? according to the website says the form is legit with the expiration date of 2/29/2012. Is there an updated form somewhere? What am I suppose to do now?

That is really odd. Have you called USCIS to speak to someone about the error?

Print out the page that explains the out of date and still using the date. Highlight the information and put it on top with the RFE paper and send it all back.

Thats IF you have located the date on your petition and made sure that it is indeed not an out of date set of forms.

It is Saturday and they are closed. I am sure some newbie at USCIS messed up and has cause further delay in my application.

Unfortunately yes, it seems someone messed up and has caused you a delay. That is the current form on the USCIS website. I would resend your package and put a note about it on your cover letter explaining it was returned in error and quoting what it says on the USCIS website explaining you have in fact used the most current form available to you.

this is so frustrating. how could this happen? did i just get unlucky and had some newbie receive my packet? I have searched endlessly for an updated form. but the most current is the 11/13/2010 version with an expiration date of 2/29/2012. And everywhere it says that it is still accepted.

Any other suggestions before I resend the packet with highlighted areas from the website stating that it is still valid to accept?
